We are Emmi Roth.

Emmi Roth, a subsidiary of Switzerland-based Emmi Group, is a leading provider of specialty cheeses. Our expansive portfolio displays a unique marriage of cheeses from two different worlds with very similar traditions and local values – from handcrafted award-winning Roth cheeses from Wisconsin to Emmi’s full range of traditional varieties imported from Switzerland.

Connected through cheesemaking.

Switzerland and Wisconsin have been connected through cheesemaking for decades. Home to Roth Cheese®, Green County, Wisconsin, is known as the Swiss Cheese Capital of America where Swiss cheese factories line the countryside throughout the region. Each of these areas is rooted deep in tradition with access to high-quality, local milk and a landscape perfect for cheesemaking.

Eighty years later, the company evolved into Roth Käse USA and began scouting locations to make their own cheese in the United States. Monroe, Wisconsin, was chosen due to its access to high-quality milk, existing cheesemaking infrastructure and the strong Swiss heritage of the region.
